Ginger, also called ginger root, is a widely used spice in many cuisines around the world. It has a spicy flavor, depending on the quantity used for the juice, and it has countless benefits for health, which is why it is often encountered in Asian recipes. It is often used for treating disorders such as arthritis pain or nausea, though there is no consensus regarding this. It contains the vitamin B complex, together with vitamins C and E and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus or potassium.
Turmeric also belongs to the ginger family called Zingiberaceae and it natively grows in south Asia. It is often used an orange-yellow powder, which helps coloring foods. Most often you can find it in curry dishes, as well as in Bangladeshi, Indian, Iranian or Pakistani cuisines. Moreover, it is used in the Indian traditional medicine, which is called Siddha or Ayurveda. Curcumin, the main substance found in this spice, is said to help with inflammation, but there is no clinical evidence for this. Besides that, it also has lots of vitamins, mineral and nutrients that help the body.
The star anise comes from the fruit of the Illiciumverum, which is an evergreen tree found in N-E Vietnam and in China. The main ingredient is anethole, which offers it the particular flavor many people love. It was also used as a medicine, due to the shikimic acid contained. It is used in traditional Chinese medicine for relieving colds and other illnesses. It is also said to help with kidneys, urinary tract or digestive issues, and as such it is highly appreciated worldwide.
